Chaplaincy and Faith Advice
The Chaplains extend a warm welcome to all members of the University community.
Chaplains and Faith Advisers are people you can talk to from 'outside the system': we're guest members of the university bringing with us a network of contacts within and beyond the university. We each come from our own faith tradition which supports and sponsors us to work here. We draw from our own spiritualities, religion and traditions and we work singly and together to offer pastoral and spiritual support to students and staff - to everyone and anyone within the university regardless but respectful of belief or unbelief.
Th Chaplaincy and Faith Advice group organises events and activities such as lunches, trips and discussion groups, as well as opportunities for prayer, worship and spiritual exploration. We hold information on local Places of Worship - churches, synagogues, mosques, temples and gurdwaras - as well as contact details for the university's student faith societies.
Most days between 9 and 9:30am there is normally (Christian) prayer in the Peace Room (Wynne Jones 408) subject to chaplain availability. If you would like to join in or for someone to pray about something that concerns you, please either come along to the Peace Room and add you request to the notice board just to the right of the door, or email and your request will be added to the notice board (or if it is a private request and only to be seen by a member of the chaplaincy team then this is the email link to follow). We would normally keep things on the board for a week, let us know if you’d like it to be on longer.
You can find an interfaith calendar here.
